Cry me a river
Everything we’ve seen about The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom, including the trailers shared before we knew the game’s name, made it seem like a rather sad, melancholy adventure. Now we know for a fact that there will be a bit of crying in this game, as Nintendo has confirmed the pronunciation of the title.
When Nintendo revealed the subtitle of ‘Tears of the Kingdom’ for The Legend of Zelda’s next journey, some fans were wondering how they were supposed to pronounce tears. Most figured the title was referring to crying, but some thought the ‘tears’ referred to ripping things apart, as in the kingdom itself was literally being torn apart. We now know that second pronunciation to be incorrect.
Nintendo has confirmed that the ‘tears’ in this title indeed refers to crying. In other words, you better get a box of tissues ready for Link’s next outing, as it looks to be quite an emotional one!
